for supine, EARTH for prone and OCEAN for supine/prone.
Each model is available in different sizes to suit the needs of
different ages, from children to teens to adults.
All models are manufactured with an easy to handle chassis.
The dimensions are designed to allow them to be used
even in narrow places or stowed away when not in use.
The particular shape of the base allows the caregiver to get
very close to the person or to bring the stabilizer as close
as possible to the bed or wheelchair, without any hindrance,
thanks to the height of the base (over 20 cm!) and to the
practical castor wheels with brakes.
Each stabilizer has an upholstered surface for supporting
the body; the inclination is gradually adjustable from the
horizontal to the vertical position and also in length to adapt
to the person’s size. The platform for the feet is adjustable
in height, foot separation, intra/extra rotation and flexion/extension
is independently adjustable.
In the three models in size 3, specifically for adults, the tilt adjustment is by means of a low voltage electric motor with
a remote hand control that allows the user to autonomously modify his position. Although it is designed for professional
use, its ease of use and compact dimensions make it ideal for the home too.

motor in the size 3 model. The plane has a very
wide tilting range and allows steady movement
from the horizontal to the vertical position to
gradually arrive at full load on the lower limbs,
starting from complete unload. This wide tilting
range also facilitates positioning and access from
